BREAKING NEWS: GOVERNOR EMMANUEL ASSURES ON AKWA IBOM AIRPORT CARGO OPERATION

Ndifreke P. Akpan (Govt House)

………Governor Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom state has assured that his administration will not relent in ensuring the speedy commencement of cargo operations at the Ibom International Airport.

Governor Emmanuel stated this in an interaction with Government House reporters shortly on arrival in Uyo after attending the National Council of States meeting in Abuja .

Promising to give further details after commencement of work on the project, he said his priority is how to commence cargo operations at the airport.
”I really want to see how we can start cargo operations almost immediately.
He said “the entire region is due for logistics operations both by air and by the sea. We can’t just wait any longer. Let’s see what we can do for ourselves.”

Governor Emmanuel was full of hopes that the country’s Chief of Air Staff will facilitate his earlier promise to partner with the state in utilising the airport’s Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul facility.
“We are also hoping that the Airforce Chief who also promised us that Airforce will do something very urgent, will also try and see how we can use the MRO but we really really want to see how we can start Cargo Operations over here because a whole lot of people are suffering.”

“If you go to Lagos, you need to see the queue from Apapa Tin Can up to Western Avenue then up to Oshodi.”

He assured that with an enabling environment from the Federal Government, the seaport project will soon be actualised.

On the just concluded National Executive Committee meeting of the PDP, the Governor said they are still rebuilding the party and looking at developmental issues that could create employment for people.

A useful project they should be focusing on.Airlines have been forced to go outside of country because Nigeria lack MRO services. They should be looking for private sector partners as backup plan.

The air port should start have international flights. I don't want to connect through Port Harcourt. It would make trip have less stops. They should have done cargo operations from beginning.

He said “the entire region is due for logistics operations both by air and by the sea. We can’t just wait any longer. Let’s see what we can do for ourselves.”

There's cargo opperations going on at portharcourt.

Annother useful project at Akwa Ibom Airport. The power generation expenses effects profit of these projects. This was also the case with Ibom specialist hospital.

The Governor who made a stop over at the State Airport Power Substation Project, announced that the essence of the project was to stop the daily use of generating sets to power the airport and avoid wastage.

He said part of the over One hundred megawatts of electricity generated by the Ibom Power Plant is to be drawn to the substation at the airport.

The Group Managing Director of ALCON, the Contracting Company at the Airport, Engr. K. C. Akuma, explained the workings of the Power Distribution Centre in the Airport noting that the current consumption was 2 megawatts.

He said the MRO, International Terminal building phase 2 and others expected to come on stream subsequently will consume about 7.5 megawatts still leaving enough gap for whatever facility the State Government may intend to bring on board in the future.

Akwa Ibom started a whole airline yet they haven't finished completed the cargo opperations. I dont know what the state is waiting for. They have odd priorities.
